Some of the tossed teddys were almost as big as the players.

It didn’t take long as the Everett Silvertips scored the first goal of the night and Teddy Bears hit the ice at Xfinity Arena in Everett. The Teddy Bears will be collected by radio station Warm 106.9 and used by first-responders to comfort kids. The Silvertips say they’ve collected more than 8000 Teddy Bears. Unfortunately they did lose the hockey game 2 -1 to Vancouver. Here are a few photos from MyEverettNews.com.

    We were on the Vancouver side, and we also got hit by bears! An unfortunate lady behind us had her beer spilled, but I think all the bears contributed made it worth it and all good fun.

    It certainly hit me and my husband. We were down in the 4th row by the Vancouver team bench. Not all of the bears made it to the ice and we got clobbered. Lots of fun! 😀
